Re: Need wheel bolt swaged into rear hub

A's & More was a good suggestion but unfortunately they are in the process of replacing their hydraulic press they use for this type of operation so they would not be able to do it soon enough. Randy...

Re: grease

Tom,

Do you use the Mystik JT-6 #1 or #2 grease? This looks like a very good grease and I like the idea that it can be used for most everything that needs grease.
